Most people seem to just transfer via this island though it's got a lot to offer. The beach is gorgeous though not that the main beach is a no bikini beach, not all visitors respect this though. I asked at our hotel about this and they said that most locals don't mind, I swam in a modest one piece then... More

This place is only good for 2 days to enjoy some city life with beach view as well. However city life is just like few shops here as compare to male city. But the hulhumale beach is very nice and charming
